NSW to introduce whole-of-govt data visualisation tool

The NSW government has released a public tender to develop a data visualisation and dashboard tool, offering a simplified means to chart patterns and trends in government services. 

The all-in-one service will allow both public servants and citizens to create charts, graphs, diagrams, and dashboards using government data sets, according to tender documents. Data will be made accessible via government APIs, databases and flat files.

Agencies will also be able to save, share, or publish content with authorised users, allowing seamless sharing between departments.

The single data visualisation tool will replace the multiple visualisation technologies the currently in place.

The proposed data visualisation tool forms part of the government’s 'three-step' digital transformation strategy, which includes initiatives to enhance the customer experience, enable more data-driven policy decisions, and deliver more streamlined and simplified processes.

The three-step program is key to the government's digitisation initiative, with the aim to deliver 70 per cent of government transactions via digital channels by 2019.
